This arrangement of two Underground Railroad songs presents a good opportunity to experience the important historical period before the abolition of slavery. Follow the Drinkin' Gourd is an escape song in which the drinkin' gourd refers to the Big Dipper pointing north. Steal Away is a traditional African-American spiritual where the words have double meaning. Available separately: 4-Part Any Combination of Voices, ShowTrax CD. Duration: ca. 5:40.
